FREAKING OUT - Part 1

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

A commentor sent,

“I'd love to hear Reb Akiva's opinion on dangers facing Jews in Israel now vs. Jews in America. What do you think the ramifications of declaring a PA state are for the Jews living in Yesha [West Bank] (and elsewhere in Israel) are? What about when Egypt elects the muslim brotherhood and faces it's ARMY against Israel? Etc etc etc.

Or, on the other hand, what are the dangers facing American Jews? I'd love to hear your cool minded opinion. But please, don't bring any modern day rabbis who say we're safe. We've heard them before the Holocaust, and we've heard them before the disengagement. Nuf' said. Try to think Zev Zhabotinsky rather.”

Right now we’re also hearing the statements of a new person (who may either be a mekubal, hidden tzaddik, a psychic, or a truck driver with Jerusalem syndrome) declaring loudly that the world is turning on the Jews and the solution is to come to Israel immediately (or at least send your sefer Torah’s).

And to add some extra pressure in the mix we have heard several statements from true and known tzaddikim that events will change significantly by the 17th of Iyar this year (that’s the day before Lag B’Omer and a Shabbat) and those Jews who are able should make their way to Israel before then.

In the midst of this the world situation has become chaotic.  During the last two months major natural disasters have hit New Zealand, Australia, and Brazil.  The Arab world is undergoing a transformative revolution with revolution or rebellion in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Baharain, Oman, Yemen, and protests in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Iran and rumblings and weird politics in Lebanon, Syria and Pakistan (which Wikileaks recently showed has an estimated 100 nuclear weapons).

Not to be left out are protests continuing in Greece, the almost financial collapse of Ireland, and North Korea attacking South Korea.

With the growing world chaos, frightening enough by itself, there has also been a massive increase in anti-semitism, anti-semitic attitudes and a general “blame the Jews” syndrome.  It’s become physically unsafe to walk as an identified Jew through parts of France (including the capital Paris), unsafe to be a Jew living in certain towns in Sweden and Holland, a target if you’re a Jew in India, and a life threatening (or rape) event to even be called a Jew in Turkey or Egypt.

So in the midst of all this, if you’re a Jew is it time to move to Israel (or not, is it all just hype and over-reporting)?

DON’T FREAK OUT (just yet), I’ll give my response in my next post (but it’s going to take a bit of time to write.)

The men did not understand that the ground belongs to the men and their differences are the experiment, the ground will crack to point out to the man his selfishness****

Akiva, check out the information on this blog: http://www.vaticanassassins.org/

Also, if you go to Israeltruthtimes blog you can listen to him. It's freaky and if he's right, which to me sounds quite plausable we are in for a very rough time. Jews in Israel will be in great danger also.

Shilo,
Why would we believe that article? The link is based on xtian thought.

Shiloh said...

Just because an xtian sites something does not mean it's untrue. According to our Sages, a wise man learns from everyone. Now if this guy, being just a non-Jew is right about warning us, and we ignore his information if it's based on solid fact, that is chillul haShem. And frankly just ignorant.

When at war, you study your enemy. This is war.

Can you give us more information? Who were the tzaddikim and when did they say it?

Shiloh said...

Why would you not look into warnings for the Jewish people just becasue Jews are not quoting it? That's not so smart. Our sages said that a wise man learns from everyone. Are you not wise enough to see that the vatican is out to get us, even using Jews. We need not be blind to what's about to hit us.

The Jews are about to be redeemed! We are not under judgment. Been there, done that. It's called galut. Now, it's the nations' turn. And that is the thing about Jews remaining in chu"l. The judgment is coming to the nations, but any Jews still living there will suffer along with them, while in EY, there will be miracles like there were in 1967 when they were preparing 100,000 graves that weren't used and like in 1991 when 39 scuds fell and no Jew died as a direct result of the bombardment.

Even in Egypt, the Jews who died in the darkness were not being punished. They didn't want to go to EY and that was their choice, but Hashem could not leave them behind or the redemption would have been incomplete. Egypt could not fall if any Jews were left there and it's the same thing today with Eisav who the prophet says will be utterly and completely destroyed, ergo no Jews left.

about the plaguse of darkness hashem did a miracle within a miracle 20% of good jews survived while the egyptians died Hashem could easily do a similar scenerio before the final redemption . As far as israel im more concerned with it and the erev rav that burns sefer torah beats pregnant frum women and burns synagauges in the settelements !

Dov Bar-Leib said...

Tirtzah: The Torah itself says that there will be a significant remnant outside EY when Ben David builds G-d's Kingdom here on earth. So we should not be so harsh. Study Tzefanyah 3. It is pshat that many Jews will survive outside EY. Outside EY will definitely not be the right place to be though, if it can be avoided, when Mashiach ben Yosef rises to destroy a resurgent Amalek in the world. The trials will be harder in EY, for much will be expected of us, but Jews outside EY will have to hide. And when judgements are inflicted on the nations of the world, natural, super-natural, or military, it will be almost impossible for Jews not to suffer with the nations that they are in. This is logical. The idea that Jews would not be affected by such judgements was disproven by the earthquake in XChurch. Jews in the city lost everything, and three Israeli "backpackers" were killed, alleihem HaShalom. At first G-d goes after the god of the nation being judged, and then the entire nation suffers. In this case it is the man-god of Edom, Western Civilization, that was hit. Next it will be...only G-d knows, but Jews living amongst the nations of Edom will intrinsically suffer with those nations. There will, I am sure, be miracles, but do not rely upon them for safety. Rav Kadouri, ztl said the same thing six years ago. So I am not making up anything new.

Shiloh said...

Akiva, who is this new person declaring Jews to leave the galut? Is it this R Nir ben Artzi?

Shiloh said...

I will answer my own question, here's a link on RafiG's site who explains who this guy is. After reading it, he is fine, he's the messiah according to himself. Hmmm, don't think haShem identified him though. Now you can judge him fairly.

Akiva said...

Shiloh,

I am referring to him as the mekubal/psychic, etc, but no he is not the ones giving a date.

tzvi said...

And to add some extra pressure in the mix we have heard several statements from true and known tzaddikim that events will change significantly by the 17th of Iyar this year (that’s the day before Lag B’Omer and a Shabbat) and those Jews who are able should make their way to Israel before then

tzvi said...

WITCH SAID 17iyar

Shiloh said...

Thanks Akiva, agreed. Any one giving dates can quickly be deemed wrong because only haShem knows.
